2013/03/08 Start of Colorado Trip: Snowboarding Keystone, Vail, and Beaver Creek
π 2013-03-08 00:00 in Snow
Arturo and I flew into Denver, where Karl and Suwei met us and drove us their Condo in keystone.

We got there a bit late on thursday night, but didn't have to go far on friday, we just walked to the lift :)

The snow on friday wasn't stellar, but eh, it was a good day to warm up (although a bad day for me since I had a brand new board that was totally unwaxed it turns out, and it took me a while to fix the stance of the bindings until I was reasonably comfortable with them on not so good snow, and mogul fields)

time for work :)

Day #2 finally had some fresh snow, not gobs of it, but it kept falling during the day, so that was good. On the wrong slopes, it was still brutal: sheets of ice with a bit of powder on top, but thankfully Karl and Suwei got us to north facing slopes that were much better and fun:






A few videos from that better day:

For the 3rd day, we went to Beaver Creek. There was a little bit more snow that fell since the previous day, so it wasn't half bad :)










Arturo got it right, that's the best way not to fall :)
